Home / Shropshire / Alberbury Castle 2

aerial photographs of Alberbury Castle Shropshire England UK. The castle has been little researched but was probably built in the 13th Century by Fulk Fitz Warin III on the strategically important border between England and Wales which had been the scene of much fighting in the wars between King John and Llewelyn Fawr which cumulated in the fall of Shrewsbury to Llewelyn in 1215. Its likley the castle was constructed shortly after the peace agreement at the treaty of Worcester in 1218 between Llewelyn Fawr and Henry III ( king John having died in 1216 ).

The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
